Now for something a little more frivolous. Is anyone else interested in 
a microformat for marking up information about music tracks?

I'm sure there's plenty of prior-art formats to borrow from (the iTunes 
library export XML comes to mind, as does the ID3 tagging info itself). 
But, where to start? What's required and optional? How to handle album 
information for "various artists" collections consistently?

On a related note, microformats for books and movies would also be 
interesting. A site like All Consuming would be able to aggregate this 
type of data in interesting ways.

Is this a dumb application for a microformat, or should I plow ahead?
